"[Kathleen] Cepelka, the superintendent of schools in the archdiocese, told the full-house audience in the Appellate Courtroom of Eckstein Hall about the strengths of schools in Milwaukee, about positive developments in enrollment, and about the many praiseworthy people and organizations involved in making the schools as good as they are.
"But, she said, the quality of some of the schools isn’t what it needs to be and there are weak levels of achievement among students in some schools. 'We are not satisfied,' she said."
